Happy Holidays!

Brrrr.....it is low 30's here tonight - the wind is blowing, and it's been sleeting.  
Yikes!  Wasn't it just summer yesterday?  
Glad that DS flew out before all of this nasty weather started.  Thanks to all of you who left such nice comments yesterday, when I was feeling like such a crybaby!  
I hope that you are all staying warm!

I have another very quick Clear Dollar Stamps card to share with you today.  
This card features the set, "Paper Christmas Trees", and is an awesome set.    

Using the 'group' of trees, and the 'Happy Holidays' sentiment, the card front was printed on 110 lb. white Office Max brand CS, and trimmed to a 5" square.  The trees were then given a bit of bling with some various colors of Stickles, a ribbon added, and the card front was matted on a scrap of black CS, then onto the card front (Bazzill Basics).  Ta-da!

The bright colors are so cheerful, and OH. MY. GOODNESS.  
What a quick card this was!  
And...it is flat for mailing!

My term with Clear Dollar Stamps has ended.  Where has the time gone?  Thanks to Lori, Jerusha, and all of the wonderful ladies at CDS for making my months with them so enjoyable!

I have another clean and simple card for you today.  I'm beginning to believe that I actually CAN make CAS cards...lol :)   This card is for the Wednesday Challenge at All That Scraps.  I'm coming in just under the wire with this one!  No magic here - it's pretty self-explanatory!  Nesties and Copics...voila!  

Sentiments by Amy R., Image is Pie Birgitta, both were purchased at All That Scraps.

Thank you for stopping by!

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.
